Learn Why You Should Never Delay Dental Treatment
Did we recommend a dental treatment the last time you visited our office and you have postponed or delayed treatment? We know that many of our patients lead busy lives and, between work, extra-curricular activities, and family obligations, it can be difficult to find the time for an appointment, but we encourage you to put your oral health first when needed. Delaying treatment can lead to discomfort, a dental emergency, the need for additional treatments, not to mention added expenses. Read on to learn more about the importance of being proactive with your oral health.
Don’t Delay, Schedule Today!
When we recommend a dental treatment, it is to ensure that you have optimal oral health and to help avoid the likelihood of developing a dental emergency. It is extremely important to be proactive and not reactive when it comes to dental health. Unfortunately, issues such as dental decay and gum disease do not heal over time. They continue to worsen until treatment is received or until the tooth falls out or needs to be extracted. When a treatment plan is ignored, it can lead to more involved treatments and costly repairs. For example, a dental crown that is postponed will ultimately lead to the loss of the tooth and the need for a tooth replacement, such as a dental implant.
We know that many patients struggle with visiting our office. Some may just have nervous feelings about the unknown, while others have an underlying fear. It is important to be honest with us about how you feel. Our goal is to get you the dental care you need while keeping you as comfortable as possible. We can further explain treatment to help you feel more at ease. Unfortunately, delaying treatment will lead to longer and more frequent visits to our office, and we want to help avoid that. Our team is caring, and we will do everything we can to ensure your comfort while under our care.
